“The goals of Alpha Phi Sigma are to honor and promote academic excellence, community service, educational leadership, and unity.”

What is Alpha Phi Sigma?

Alpha Phi Sigma is the nationally recognized honor society for students in the field of criminal justice science. The society recognizes academic excellence by undergraduate and graduate students of criminal justice as well as students in the juris doctorate field. We currently have over 800 members in the ASU branch of Alpha Phi Sigma. We seek to build our organization to best serve our members and bridge opportunities to build our communities.

Students who meet eligibility requirements (see "become a member" webpage), can become members of Alpha Phi Sigma as long as they are enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program (or higher) in the field of criminal justice OR a related discipline. Related disciplines include criminology, forensics, law, homeland security, human services, political science, sociology, justice studies, psychology, public administration, and social sciences.

About the organization ... history lesson

Alpha Phi Sigma was established in January of 1942 by Dr. Vivian Anderson Leonard and 17 Police Science majors at Washington State University. On March 24th, 1976 Alpha Phi Sigma was designated as the National Criminal Justice Honor Society. Alpha Phi Sigma was granted membership by the Association of College Honor Societies in 1980. There are now over 360 chapters of Alpha Phi Sigma across the United States.

The mission of Alpha Phi Sigma is to promote analytical thinking, rigorous scholarship, and lifelong learning; to keep abreast of the advances in scientific research; to elevate the ethical standards of the criminal justice professions and to sustain in the public mind the benefit and necessity of education and professional training.

Our goals shall be to honor and promote academic excellence; service; leadership and unity.
